Exploring Old Manila, Philippines


 I can safely  say that I have been to at least 40+ countries in my lifetime but I am ashamed to say that I have not traveled around my own country as much as that.  There are so many places all over the Philippines that I have yet to explore and discover. I mean, I've already known all along that my country has the most amazing beaches and magnificent nature spots. I always used to think that it is only known for just these kinds of spots and that we don't really have any old buildings and palaces and monasteries like other countries do. Last Weekend, my sisters and I decided to hire a car and a driver and tour Old Manila, which is the  oldest part of our capital. I was pretty surprised to see that we also had our own kind of old cultural spots that had nothing to do with beaches!

ThrowBack Travel : Nepal

It's already been years since I went to Nepal with my family. I still haven't gotten over the trip, I also have not gotten the chance to write about it here thus I've placed it under the Throwback Travel Thursday Category. 

Nepal is one incredible country. As some of you may or may not know, it is home to some of the most famous and highest mountains in the world. It is abundant in nature and also in culture.

Arena Island : A Gorgeous Island Resort in Palawan, Philippines

I absolutely adore the beach. I live in a country that has around seven thousand islands so I am really lucky to have numerous choices of beautiful sandy beaches to choose from. A few months ago one of my good friends told us about a deal that she found in one of those coupon/discounted websites. It was for a 3day/2night stay at Club Arena, Palawan. It was a really, really good deal and something that we couldn't pass up so we were like, let's go and book!

Visiting Armenia and the best sites to see

Finally Part 3 of my Armenia series. I have already written in the other two parts about how much I love this country. I was there for only a little over a week with my family and I found that it had so much to offer. Armenia is a really small country that has an abundance of beautiful sights, gorgeous countryside and food that is so good! Even now, months later, I am still craving it!

Armenia and Why You Should Definitely Put It On Your Bucket List, Part 2

I went to Armenia on a family trip and I loved it so much! I already wrote part one of this trip but I felt like one post wasn't enough. I took over two thousand photos and had the hardest time picking out the ones to feature here. This country is truly amazing and even now, I still cannot get over it. I feel like it is such an underappreciated destination and I hope that people reading this and all my other Armenia posts will be inspired to visit!

Armenia and Why You Should Definitely Put It On Your Bucket List, Part1

Traveling has always been a big part of my interests. When I travel with my family, we love discovering places that are not as popular or as over featured as some other countries. This year, we decided to take a trip to Armenia.


A lot of our friends were asking us why we wanted to go there - it's not somewhere that people from where I'm from go to just off the bat. Most visited are European or Asian countries like Thailand and Japan. They were wondering where and what is in Armenia and exactly why did we decide to go? I'm glad we decided on it because Armenia is honestly one of the most gorgeous countries I’ve been to! I really hope that anybody reading this will want to visit this beautiful place. Read more and see all the photos to find out why!

My Highlights and Experiences in Sri Lanka

*This Post originally appeared on my now defunct lifestyle blog Style and Chocolates. This blog post has a few modifications to the text and is being transferred here permanently.



I've always been fascinated by the thought of Sri Lanka. If you’re a Disney or Rudyard Kipling fan, you would know that The Jungle Book was set in the jungles of Sri Lanka! Our tour also included a safari to one of the National parks so I was super excited for that! I’ll be posting some photos, as well as anecdotes and highlights of the places we visited.
